I’m 60 and thinking about having a facelift. Would it lift my neck?
A necklift is always part of a facelift. The tissues in the neck are connected and continuous with the tissues in the face, and for the best results, the lower face and neck are treated as one unit, with tightening and repositioning of the relaxed tissues of both. Different surgeons have different approaches to the neck, but in a well done facelift, the neck will also be corrected.
A properly done “facelift” addresses the neck and would definitely lift it. The vast majority of people who come to my office to discuss a facelift are actually much more concerned with restoring a good jawline and tighter neck.I explain to my patients that the procedure is actually a face/neck lift.
Yes, a lower facelift is often combined with the neck to tighten both.
A necklift is commonly combined with a facelift. The neck can be treated from the facelift incisions, but it is more direct to make a small incision under the chin,, tighten the muscles, and address the fat.
